Lions Club sells out

Dinner and Auction event raised close to $12,000 in 100 Mile

Close to $12,000 was raised at the 100 Mile Lions Club annual Dinner & Auction at the 100 Mile Community Hall on Nov. 14.

The funds raised will be dispersed throughout the year in the form of scholarships and donations benefiting local organizations, such as the 100 Mile House Food Bank, the local White Cane Club, the South Cariboo Health Foundation, 100 Mile & District Soccer Association, Dry Grad, and the 100 Mile Festival of the Arts.

The sold-out evening, the club’s major fundraiser of the year, included great food, entertainment, donated items and prizes.

Chairperson Kim Taylor, vice-president of the local Lions Club, thanks everyone who came out and supported the event, and the merchants who donated items for the auction.
